Photostory Friday / Japanese Christmas Tree at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Memorial





I enjoyed the many decorated international Christmas trees on display while visiting the Richard Nixon Presidential Library & Memorial yesterday. Each tree was adorned with ornaments significant to each culture. I am posting the tree for "Japan." I recently visited Japan so this one is of special interest to me. Most of the trees were easily identifiable without reading their country origin.

I had a very difficult time getting a clear focus on these photos. Flash photography is not allowed and neither is the use of a tripod (although I didn't have a tripod with me anyway). I am not happy with the sharpness of these photos...but, I am posting them anyway.

I love tradition -- but I also love it when someone is brave enough to tweak tradition a little. I think your pictures look great.
